This photo accentutes two of the four pendentives that form the support system for the dome.
Traditionally, the four triangular pendentives feature the four evangelists.
Note the pendentives that allow a round dome to be built on a recgtangular base.
Because of the pendentives it is not necessary to use a round building, like the Pantheon in Rome, to support the round dome.
